Hello my friendly peeps!  This is an ATC I made for The Dusty Attic.  Each month we hold an ATC Challenge and this month's theme is "On the Red Spectrum".
The Dusty Attic Mini Scroll was painted and heat embossed.
My amazing friend found this quote for me to use because she knows I adore love quotes.  :o)
I used Glass Bead Gel in the background of the ATC to add an interesting texture.
I set eyelets in the holes of the heart buttons and tied hemp cord for a final touch.

All of the Dusty Attic chippies can be found in my shop.  Just click on the red SHOP tab above!

Have a beautiful day!
Much love and hugs,

 Hello, hello again!  How is everyone doing?  Today I'd like to share my caddy that I use to keep my foam adhesives!

This Mini Tool Caddy (DA3014), manufactured by The Dusty Attic, was 'smooched' with Smooch Spritz in Cashmere and Mixed Berries.  It is a sturdy piece that is the perfect size to fill with your supplies and keep by your side as you create.
 My sweet friend, Michelle, sent me this gorgeous flower!  Isn't it beautiful?
I used Donna Salazar's Bubble Wrap Stamp to decorate the sides of the caddy.  I stamped the image using Honey Mix'd Media Inx and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.
 The letters are Dusty Attic chipboard pieces.  (Bookman ABC Set DA0666)

A touch of tulle always softens the look of any project.  :o)

The inside texture was created using Opaque White Flakes.
 The sides of the caddy are decorated with stamped images made with Donna's Heart Applique stamps.  I embossed the image with Jasmine Mix'd Media Inx Embossing Powder and layered the cut images on top of one another. 

That's all for today!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!  
Much love and hugs 
xoxo

Hello again, my crafty friends! Today I have a layout to share that was made using an older collection by Donna Salazar called Grandma's Garden.  I LURVE these gorgeous papers!

I used a sketch by Lydell Quin for this layout.  I adore her sketches!

(Sorry about the wonky photo of the layout.  The paper was a bit wrinkled and I had a hard time photographing it.  That's why it looks a little distorted.)
I cut out the floral images from a second sheet of the English Roses paper and layered them on top of the matching image using adhesive foam for dimension.  Beneath the layered image, I tucked in chipboard elements made by The Dusty Attic (Sweet Pea Border DA0593).
The bottom border was punched and hand-stitched with embroidery floss.
The ornate design you see beneath the heart is a stamped image that I embossed and fussy cut.  This stamp is called Swirly Doos by Art Gone Wild.
The pink, hand-made flower was cut with the Rose Creations dies by Spellbinders.  I followed a tutorial by Mistra Hoolahan.  You can view her flower tutorials HERE.
The vine is also an embossed image made with a DSD stamp.
...layers of hearts cut with Spellbinders dies.
The title is made up of chippie letters (Bookman ABC Set DA0666)
I outlined a few of the hearts with embroidery floss to add texture.
This photo of my hubby and I was taken a few years ago while we were still engaged.  :o)
If you look closely you can see how Donna Salazar's Bubble Wrap stamp adds an awesome texture to the background.  I used a pearl embossing powder so that the texture would appear subtle.  Love this stamp!!

That's all for today!  Thank you for stopping by!
